Lt. Col. Justin Delorit, 819th RED HORSE Squadron commander, shakes hands with Chief Master Sgt. Nathan Laidlaw, 819th RHS senior enlisted leader, in front of the newly dedicated field training exercise site at Malmstrom Air Force Base, Montana, Aug. 18, 2023. The site was dedicated to Brig. Gen. William Meredith, who is referred to as the "Father of RED HORSE" after beginning a series of assignments in the 1960's, in which he was primarily concerned with restructuring civil engineering organizations to adequately fulfill their mission of direct combat support.
